Avera Sacred Heart Home Care
Recovery from illness, surgery or injury at home or using home-based hospice services are increasingly popular and effective aspects of contemporary healthcare. At Avera Sacred Heart, we fully support the idea that in many cases, for many people, home care is the best care.
Avera Sacred Heart Home Care Services, a Medicare-certified and Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations (JCAHO) accredited agency, provide services to patients in 10 south Dakota and five Nebraska counties.
Whether you need skilled nursing care, rehabilitation services, or help with daily household chores, Avera Sacred Heart Home Care can help. Our friendly, compassionate staff still makes house calls - because bringing healthcare home - is what we do best!
Avera Sacred Heart Home Care offers a broad range of healthcare and support services to people of all ages in the comfort of their own homes. Besides providing direct patient care, home care professionals teach families what they need to know so they can properly care for a family member.
